Full description
From the black sand beaches and picturesque caldera to the mountaintops and charming villages, Santorini is an island with much to see. Discover the marvels that make up of one of most charming Greek islands on this private full-day scenic tour. Your tour begins with a visit to the island's half-submerged caldera—a picture perfect setting. Strike a pose against the backdrop of the deep-blue Aegean Sea and take some memorable photos as your guide tells you about Santorini's volcanic history. 

Continue to the iconic village of Oia—renowned for its whitewashed houses and idyllic sunset. Take a stroll around the streets and enjoy some free time to explore the village. For an insight into Santorini's sacred culture, venture up to the island's highest point, where the Prophet Elias Monastery is perched, at nearly 2,000 feet (565 meters) above sea level. Hear monks chant and admire the far-reaching vistas that span the entire region before sampling dessert wine and extra virgin olive oil made on-site.

Next, venture around the island's countryside and enjoy the local stops away from the tourist crowds handpicked by your private guide. Have the opportunity to visit a traditional winery, where you can learn about the production of the local Assyrtiko wine or stop at a selected restaurant to sample some of the local foods Santorini is famous for. Round off your day on the Aegean waters with a visit to Kamari or Perissa, the longest black sand beaches on the island covered with black volcanic sand before returning back to your hotel or cruise ship.
